“My new member experience with the JLC has been incredible! Learning about all of the good the League does in the Columbia area has been eye opening and getting to have a hand in that positive impact is humbling. This community of women is hard working, professional, caring, and kind. Getting to know my fellow members through membership meeting, training sessions, and events has been a privilege. There is a bit more of a time commitment in the new member year, but it is completely manageable and also worth every second. You will get out of Junior League what you are willing to put into it, so the time we are putting into JLC this year is making it all the more enjoyable for us – and will continue to do so for years to come!”­ – Rachel Price

Joining the Junior League was something I had been looking forward to for some time. I knew that this organization would provide me with many opportunities to serve our community and meet other women who are deeply committed to lifelong personal development. Even though I was aware of JLC’s impact on the Midlands, I have been blown away this past year to see just how devoted my fellow members are to uplifting other women and working together to create a safer, healthier, and more inclusive community for all of us. I can’t wait to see what the upcoming months bring!” -Lindsey Shealy

I am loving the JLC for the new friendships I have made and the exposure I have gotten to volunteer opportunities in the community. For anyone who wants to join, I would recommend planning ahead! Shifts and meetings are so much more fun when you’re not feeling like you “have” to go to fulfill an obligation. I am looking most forward to participating in more community shifts and deciding which placement I will like for my first active year.” – Laura Rollins

The Junior League of Columbia, Inc. welcomes all women who value our mission. We are committed to inclusive environments of individuals, organizations and communities.
